Isabelle was born on 21st April at approximately 5pm at Cedar Sinai Medical Center in Las Vegas.

The third series of Scandal had to cut short as a result of Washington's pregnancy, as Fox reports. The show which was intended to run for 22 episodes was shortened by four. The show's season three finale aired on ABC on 17th April and it has yet to be announced if the series will return for a fourth season.

Isabelle is Washington's daughter with her husband, retired NFL player, Nnamdi Asomugha. Asomugha played for the San Francisco 49ers until he announced his retirement last year. The couple married in June 2014 and Isabelle is their first child together.

Congratulations to Kerry Washington and Nnamdi Asomugha on the birth of their daughter!
